By far the worst company to work for

  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities

I worked at Danaher full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Salary is fairly decent buts thats about it.

Cons

Work / Life Balance is horrible they expect you to work whenever they say but you unable to carry any time off over to the next year. Did i mention you only get 10 days per year. Danaher considers there employees as a statistics you are just another number on a sheet to them. Once your project ends be prepared to look for another opportunity because they already forecasted the end of your job. There is ZERO culture at Danaher you feel like a drone working here & you can be easily replaced. I believe the average lifespan of an employees is 1-3 years if your not senior management expect to get canned within that timeframe. I would avoid working for them or any of there subsidiaries at all cost.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Care more about your employees welfare then just what they can do for you. Provide opportunities for growth not just for senior management but for all the other associates.

    I worked at Danaher as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of friendly employees
    Treated an intern well
    Gave me a serious project as a intern

    Cons

    Corporate control
    Outsourcing
    Doesn't have room for engineers to move up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No big advice from an intern! Company constantly being restructured. Too much change for a productive environment. Shaky ground discourages the employees.

    Better as a shareholder or a senior executive, than a regular employee

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Danaher full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Pressure drives performance
    - DBS concept interesting intellectually at the beginning

    Cons

    - No training, no backoffice investment
    - Dogmatic approach "processes will drive success"
    - Redundant reporting without enough focus on core results
    - Not enough meritocracy: some senior posts will just be assigned rotationally or based on relationships. If you are not well connected you may work 80 hours weeks til you retire and not get anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it a great place to work. Otherwise when the labor market improves you'll start losing key people
